The Missouri Report: Achieving the National Education Goals, 1993.
Missouri Governor's Office, Jefferson City.
This report on Missouri's efforts to achieve the six National Education Goals for the year 2000 includes indicators to assess the state's progress in meeting those goals and program descriptions. Measures to achieve goal 1, to ensure that all children start school ready to learn, include education for preschoolers and their families, family crisis intervention, and health services. Reaching goal 2, raising the high school graduation rate to at least 90 percent, involves programs including coursework students see as valuable, and combating drugs and gangs. Goal 3 asks that students show competence in basic subjects and graduate prepared for responsible citizenship and employment. Programs for achieving this goal include statewide standards and assessment, school performance reports, vocational technology, and improved higher education. Professional development, technology, and education initiatives can meet goal 4, making students first in the world in science and mathematics. Goal 5 of adult literacy and lifelong learning can be achieved through improved adult education programs. Goal 6 of safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools can come through programs to decrease drug use and violence in schools, communities, and homes. A summary of the Missouri Outstanding Schools Act is included. (JPT)
